As such, we want to help you mediate any disputes as quickly and easily as possible.

Reviews

We encourage you to check our fantastic, transparent Google & Trustpilot reviews. We do not curate selected testimonials like some companies do.

By enlisting the assistance of Manak Solicitors as soon as you think you may need to take action in the debt recovery process, you greatly strengthen your legal position.

  • Requesting judgement where the defendant fails to acknowledge service and/or file defence: £250.00

I received Manak's details from MSE, so was confident that the service would be good, and we were not disappointed. Nosheen is very friendly, helpful and informative, and took us through the process of drafting our wills very efficiently. Nosheen answered all of our questions with professionalism and courtesy. We had a lot of questions, to make sure everything we were advised, was what we actually needed and Nosheen provided this. No matter how silly you may think your question is, please ask. I'm glad I did. Thank you Nosheen and the team. Dawn

Many thanks to Nosheen for the support in gaining a Grant of Probate. I knew I had reached the limit of my knowledge on the matter and Nosheen was very helpful in explaining what needed to be done, responsive to emails, and concluded matters exactly to her estimated timetable. Highly recommended.

I recently engaged the services of this firm to help in a legal matter. The solicitor Nosheen was very helpful and offered sage advice in what was a very tricky situation. I hope (in a good way) never having to use their services again, but if I did, they would be the first door I would (virtually in these socially distanced times) knock on!

I called Manak to discuss my conveyancing requirements on a Wednesday. I gave them my details and was told someone would call me back the same day but no one did. I then called again on the Friday to nudge them and was told again someone would definitely call me back that same day and no one has made any effort to return my call.

Nosheen is one of the best solicitors I have had the pleasure of meeting.She is very professional. Nosheen always returns your calls and responds to emails promptly. She is very helpful and easy to talk to and always happy to explain anything I didn't understand. Since meeting Nosheen I have used other solicitors within Manaks relating to other services I required and would not use anyone else but Manaks.
